The Lock has been a long journey.
As I’ve been doing this in my spare time, it has taken a while to get to where I am now.
The Lock Graphic novel will be about 100 pages long. I’m currently about 1/3 of the way through the roughs.
Below is a rough to give you an idea of style. Like most publications, I’m using a rough grid system to layout the panels. I’ll be using breakouts and also full page illos where I think it needs impact.
Considering how long this project has gone on for, I still get excited by it and where it will go. I haven’t lined up a publisher yet as I’m concentrating on completing the pages first.
If you know of a publisher who might be interested in this dark GN, let me know.
Below are some sneak peeks at some of the characters in the story.
You can see here the mixed medium style I’m going for. Photography, line drawing and computer work will all go into the mix for the final look and feel.
The full page illos will be very textured and colour graded in a way to keep the Edwardian tone.
